The American Revolution was against British gun control


Furious at the December 1773 Boston Tea Party, Parliament in 1774 passed the Coercive Acts. The particular provisions of the Coercive Acts were offensive to Americans, but it was the possibility that the British might deploy the army to enforce them that primed many colonists for armed resistance. The Patriots of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, resolved: “That in the event of Great Britain attempting to force unjust laws upon us by the strength of arms, our cause we leave to heaven and our rifles.” A South Carolina newspaper essay, reprinted in Virginia, urged that any law that had to be enforced by the military was necessarily illegitimate.

Depending on its configuration, the AR-15 you already have would probably be treated like a machine gun. You would have to be fingerprinted, background checked by the FBI, and undergo a six-month license application process to keep it. And when you die, the government will seize it.

My Season with Jesse - An Examination of Conspiracy and Commerce

Michael J. Hobart has done a tremendous service to the community by writing summaries of Season Three episodes of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura. Today he posted a great summary of Ventura's career and asks some interesting questions. This is well worth reading!

Is there a Reptilian agenda? Is the existence of time travel technology being hidden from us? Are our minds being controlled by brain invaders, who secretly plan for a future without us and attack us with death rays? In my estimation, all of the conspiracies presented in Season Three of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura are worth examining, because they present useful opportunities to determine for oneself what is real or unreal, or what is more likely or less likely to be real. Blindly trusting any source of information is a hazardous proposition, whether that source is Jesse Ventura, Alex Jones, or MSNBC.
